Natsumi Hayashi: Levitating Self-Portraits

Photographer Natsumi Hayashi has an inspiring diary of self-portraits capturing her levitating(in the moment that is). It’s  addictive to go through all the photos which renders her like a magical character in a video game floating everywhere. This would be an incredible coffee table book. Awesome work Natsumi. I’d love to levitate with you sometime on Tokyo =)

Look at some  many of my favorites after the jump.

    […] were taken by Natsumi Hayashi. Maybe it’s appropriate that a photographer best known for her levitating self-portraits would have an interest in zero gravity couture, but I can’t find any information on the suit, […]

    It looks like she could levitate. And she sure could jump high.

    Nice images. I think you could work on creating a more realistic effect by playing with the shadows. There seems to be a disconnect between the artist and environment. I also think you may want to incorporate your poses into your background a bit more effectively. Some are playful and exciting, but others are merely about the levitation and I find that much less interesting.

    I love these photos so much! The only thing bad I have to say about them is that some of the photos look like they’re missing her shadow.

    […] 1. Levitating Self-Portraits by Natsumi Hayashi: This has become my new favourite photography collection.  I can’t even begin to imagine how long it took her to capture each of these shots.  I’m beyond impressed!  http://www.designverb.com/2011/02/20/natsumi-hayashi-levitating-self-portraits/ […]
